Small and fast-moving brown honeyeater. This one was hovering to take nectar out of a plant in our backyard.
Our backyard. These small birds are adaptable and live in a variety of habitats across eastern Australia and as far north as New Guinea.
Brown honeyeaters (Lichmera indistincta) are regular visitors to our garden and I thought this was one of them, until I had a good look at the photos! This is the first time I've seen a Dusky Honeyeater. Apparently they are rarely seen south of Rockhampton.
